Fursona Help?
« on: June 30, 2017, 05:02:20 pm »
Yo I need help editing Kipekee

All my fursonas have a theme, except for Kipekee. Kipekee is just me, and that's pretty bland. I don't wanna make her artist-themed because that's Tabby's theme but I don't know what else defines me the most. What's a good theme for an outgoing, fun-loving, goofy, emotional, dreamer-type Foxdog?

Everyone's fursonas (and even my other characters) seem more interesting than Kip, and I wanna change that.

Hmm... I think I might be able to help. Before I do, is their anything in particular you're interested it that I might be able to keep in mind? Just out of curiosity x3

I wouldn't know exactly. But may you're talking about shoes right. Dreamer-type, huh? Fun-loving? How about the self-lacing shoes from Back to the Future? Or especially this one: John Lennon's Peace Sneakers?:

She already wears sneaks. I'm not talking appearance. I'm talking personality, interests, and overall character. I w at her to be someone I relate to but not too much like me. Heck, I'm starting to connect more to the characters who don't represent me at all, and are just OCs. Kip feels bland and I don't want her to be bland.

Sorry, then for misunderstanding. Transfer the purity of your personality to her. Write a long document about yourself, ask a close friend to write a similar document about you and compile them into Kip.

Yeah but I don't need her to be exactly like me, that's the problem. She feels like the odd one out of my OCs, which is otherwise a cast of colorful characters. I need a theme (e.g. Artist, pirate, fangirl, astronaut) that fits her intended side personality, because otherwise- she's just an animal version of me. Which is boring. So I need a trait to base her around. She needs to be simple. But I still need her to represent me- and not be too similar to any of my exsisting characters.

Hmm... I see where you're coming from here. Foxi is just like me, but she still has her own theme (death, of course). I think I can help, actually! So you say she's outgoing, fun-loving, emotional etc., which gives me a pretty good idea of who she is. Just for a little more guidance, though, maybe you could tell me some of her interests? Then I can definitely think of something for you!

She likes exploring, forests, memes, America, sushi, Nintendo games, doodling/writing/dancing, cartoons, and music.

Excuse my double post, I've been doing a lot of it lately, I'm very sorry.

Have you thought if anything yet?

I have a new idea for her design. I want her to be slightly "edgier", if you will, but still appear friendly as well. Which I have no idea how to portray XD

I'd recommend making the design itself mostly edgy, but then either adding specific elements that could go for a more friendly appearance or personality, or drawing/portraying them as being approachable. For example, my own fursona. His design looks kinda scary/edgy, but I often portray him as "cute" or friendly. (Even though I wish I had the drawing skills to draw him being more frightening sometimes.)

(I really don't know what kind of advice to give, though, and I hope what I wrote made sense since I just woke up not too long before writing this xD)

Either way, good luck with everything

Yo on ideas, I'd say give her some type of forest theme. Kind of wild and mysterious, but also friendly and interested in society.

On the other hand, she could just be a fun-loving kid who gets into trouble, nothing special but still interesting. Good luck!

Clothes/hair/accessories can really help portray what you're going for! I'm able to really portray Amelia as an "edgy bad girl" in artwork I commission of her when she's wearing her leather jacket outfit and holding certain accessories but then I can also give her a "summer aesthetic" when I want by changing her outfit to her summer one and her accessories which gives her a much more "cute and friendly" vibe while keeping her design the same

That's a good idea! You seem pretty good at this, so what kind of clothes would you suggest for a playful, tomboyish dreamer?

I haven't been very active and missed this oops!
Tbh I'm one of the least fashionable people you've ever met and no nothing about clothing :P I'd recommend looking on google images, clothing store websites etc etc to find styles or articles of clothing you like ^^
For Amelia I commissioned StrawberryNeko on fa for three custom clothing designs which is how I got her outfits ^^
